Inspired by the colors of pornographic pictures from the sixties and seventies Jo Michiels makes abstract, 'imperfect' paintings and drawings. Clear emotions are not reflected in the paintings. They are compositions of geometric shapes, colors and organic lines. Although the paintings are abstract, the artist does not exclude figurative elements. Defined areas, lines and interventions during the working process (overpainting, wipe, additions) give his paintings a graphic and contemporary character.
